JOURNAL ENTRY

September 07, 2003

I am sitting at south base in an abandoned military hangar, completely out of my comfort zone. Clui leases this building from the county of wendover UT. Sitting about a half mile visible is the Enola Gay hangar that housed the plane that dropped the first atomic bomb during world war two. Once the war was over every one left this once populated town. This place is creepy, there are bullets scattered all over the ground for miles out here trusting..trusting in the lord I am all alone out here for a while till this guy Steve from Simparch returns. he has a skateboard, skate fever. My lantern is shooting flames and it is my only source of light, trusting in the lord to watch over me.. the moths are attacking my headlamp, ohh working on suspending one form in the hangar.

visual purity wrapped around the surface form
